"A la Memoire de Rossini." Original large lithograph by Henri Fantin-Latour (1836-1904)
Dated the day that Rossini's remains were brought to and interred in Florence, "23 Juin 1902 Florence," in the stone at lower left and signed by the artist both in the stone and at lower right. Sheet size 470 x 642 mm., image size 382 x 380 + ca. 90 x 62 mm. portrait of Rossini (a "remarque") to right margin. Small tear to blank right margin; hinged to mat at upper corners of verso. In very good condition overall. . We believe the edition of this print to have been limited to 150 copies (50 on china paper, 100 on Japon) plus 20 trial proofs. The present print is, in all likelihood, a proof, evidenced by the presence of the remarque and also the faint suggestion of additional lettering in the stone at the upper margin. Rare. Fantin-Latour was a French painter and lithographer, well-known for his portraits of Parisian artists and writers.
